20 Important Albums Meme

As usual no tagging from me—got this from Ken Pfrenger on Facebook...
Think of 20 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that no matter what they were thought of musically shaped your world. When you finish, tag 20 others, including me. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you're it!

Don't make too much fun! Feel free to guess (or ask) why particular albums are there.

In no particular order, and I included the original release dates for fun:

1. Joe's Garage: Act 1 - Frank Zappa (1979)
2. Discipline - King Crimson (1981)
3. Meet the Beatles - The Beatles (1964)
4. M. F. Horn Vol. 1 - Maynard Ferguson (1970)
5. The Wall - Pink Floyd (1979)
6. Kiss Alive II - Kiss (1977)
7. Stan Getz & the Oscar Peterson Trio - Stan Getz & the Oscar Peterson Trio (1957)
8. Druid Wood - Celtic Stone (1984)
9. So - Peter Gabriel (1986)
10. 1984 - Van Halen (1984)
11. Blow Up - The Smithereens (1991)
12. A Wild and Crazy Guy - Steve Martin (1978)
13. South of the Border - Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass (1964)
14. Dizzy Gillespie in Paris Vol. 1 - Dizzy Gillespie (1953)
15. Freedom of Choice - DEVO (1980)
16. Get the Knack - The Knack (1979)
17. Haymarket Minstrels - Curtis & Loretta (1989)
18. Dream Police - Cheap Trick (1979)
19. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap - AC/DC (1976)
20. Setting Sail - Tourdion (1998)

Wow, this is really a microscopic number of albums that were/are important to me—to force some variety, I purposely limited myself to one title per artist.
